UMOTEST COOPEX MONTBELIARDE

digeR

Improve feed efficiency of the Montbeliarde cattle

To meet its needs, a cow must be fed properly, but what is the right amount of food to produce quality milk?
digeR is a collaborative project bringing together two milk recording and herd support organisations: CEL 25-90 and Geniatest. Umotest is involved as a Montbeliarde breeding program. They pooled their resources and skills to enhance information from a sample of milk. digeR gives information on rumen efficiency per cow and per lactation. digeR is a phenotyping tool and a method for genetic evaluation of the feed efficiency based on milk analysis.
digeR is calculated individually for each Montbéliarde of the herd. It allows to rank the animals thanks to a new indice. Heritability estimated of digeR is 31,4% (heritability of milk is 30%). digeR allows also to define a mating strategy based on feed efficiency.
